2:07 pm
doeseem that. is a growing skepticism and the santander. hardening the polarization relaxing lockdown questioning our official narratives and so forth is being associated with. i'll be enough with right wing politics. this is confusing to me i am i have been a lifelong leftist. i thought it was the left that is defined by questioning authority and resisting the agendas of pharmaceutical companies and. and governmentncorporation and there is some of surveillance and- i. centralized of informationnd censorship of michael. i can left in his right here. nose getting all mixed up this. charles obviously because we want to change something we want to y to control. media they basically want to get rid of fear. the thing is. i d't think it leads to less fear
2:08 pm
what do you think. the root of our fear is our separation. from the rest of life. from community. are from all of we're not being fully humanes. right now we're not in intimate close relationship with my foot places around us with the plants and animals and the just the land the serial we don't have that therefore. we walked into these nero separate selves. this is us existentially insecurend especially afraid of death. because of our experience of self and so dependent on distant anonymous institutions and strangers. then then yeah we're insecure and the death of thateparate self is the death of all things but if you're in bed and you experience yourself

2:11 pm
said here's what's happening. and tries to explain everything. because every single one of those that i've seen leave us some data ints out. there are more people in the past decade started to meditate going to yoga studios barbara you saying this moralistic lifestyle we're embracing certain spiritual values that are universal. so i'm not saying ma'am thank that in this. like this that you know the help at the same time it seems that many the students had to close. down most. people for example. there people when wonders they run back to. what's familiar and able to authority. to protect them especially if they are immature people. our civilization has delivered us a lot of immature people and infantilizing us a lot of ways your. remember if
2:12 pm
it doesn't happens to be a daddy right it was in the white house and that person is not it's just probably fhting as the authority figuret seems so that leader that we now need to people for does exist- boxes back to ourselves again. yeah this is the flux find some protective authorities saw strong not a lot of people still look to him. the two. institutional authority figures but you know the cdc the whl or just the doctors over the doctors say yeah. people are. starting to lose their patience. withou but may that's just wishful thinking. it is it when you were facing challenges in your life you know how did you deal with them in into or maybe your health or whatever it might be and then have you seen
2:13 pm
this larger perspective tt you're not trying to help us see. m. it says something that that you know you've tried to be helping your online one. i need to oaden for. nine years of my life i had experiences there that were categorically impossible. from the perspective of the ucation that i received a the acculturation that i had receivedroit from my home culture. and so i was like whoa. if what i have been told is true isn't true what else have i been told is true that isn't star decades long journey. dot that just with a question that i've been holding ever since i was a teenager which is what's wrong in the world. what's the
2:14 pm
origin of the obvious wrongness. of our society the normal answers to that in radical political fought like say capitalism colonialism. white supremacy or whatever. these didn't go deep enough for me because they also took for granted. that's a reality those ins installations of reality that tha i have personally experienced is not actually being true. well that'll kind of dissolving of the certainty. it is a necessary initiation if anything's going to change in this world. and that has been happening for a lot of people over. you know a span of many decades and maybe it is with. the crowded bars visibility does. the cts this tolimb all the more time to it yeah
2:15 pm
maybe that's one reason why. despite decades and decades of. well surgeon popping. of mr kalifat natural health and so forth that it's all gone yeah. you kn. it's just not part of the conversation at least in the mainstream media once the articles about howo. the pharmacy cwhl about how to improve your immunity. thank it's all intact the. the competition has been shut down yeah so do you just think pointed out just to clarify that indeed- doctors rollout to stay open as essential service services medical doctors and ballistic health conditions. senses services absolute lock box which indeedrochure points completely. where do you seein what one of the ways to
2:16 pm
diagnose a civilization is to look at what it. it. how devoted surplus. our society mostly devoted to work for. into mindless consumption i would have preferred a surplus to having.asing performances and parties and festivals and art instlations. at scei burning man which is quite extravagant. people criticize it for not stopping the arts. wake a similar lesser point about any. the festival. celebration is extravagant compared to one bomber. extravagant compared to your craft group. the total amount of money spent on armaments in this world is that controlling dollars a minute divorced yet not spent on inspiration and art. if we turned the entire military budget. toward
2:17 pm
celebration. he maybe half of it toward celebration on the other half toward ecological regeneration thank. in a paradise one the message of this for you. i've heard some people say it is and it's true for needed to- that message i slow down. i'm curious so if tomorrow everything is fine again one one thing you want to do that you cano now. is that one should such thing. what's most important to me is it would be four point one my son can do he's my younger son seven. and he's basically been living without playmates for two months. not because we're trying to keep them safe but because- it's socially verboten yeah. you know this is really hard after. the firm did. hav an opportunity to play with somebody. it's not just about hanging out together it's not
2:18 pm
about consuming together for sociology most people today they get togethe and consume something. yr restaurant you go have drinks you go watch a sports f you you watch something orou need something you drink something. but to really know somebody and to relate to them on a more than superficial level you can't just consumedogether that doesn't bring out any of your true qualities. you have to create together you have to strive together you have to suffer together you have to overcome challenges together mmhm if you. want a sports team. there are musical ban or theater troupe or something like that you know what i'm talking about yes the bonds that you have with tse people is much stronger and your inking budes. so right now we're seeing just like the icg on the cake. the final phase of- loneliness that has much deeper roots. in goes down we could also talk about
2:19 pm
disconnection from nature that's another form of loneliness to feel like an alien. on the on the place where you live. the cabinet for. of course can change in a separate. i'm which word will seem to keep us safer and protect the separate self. and thether path i to drop some of tho cards. hello our relational selves to expands to come back into multi layered relationships with other people and with the natural world. and to trust in the world the opposite of controls trust. so to trust in the intelligence of nature and thereby in our participation in nature. i'm too trusting each other rather than in a central authority.
2:20 pm
that tells us what to do and what to think. in a drug or- where do you draw back soon- yeah it's not that we never. he uses. technological media set the controls bad actuay no instead it's become totally. it's beyond its proper bounds so i do think that that there's a place for drugs it's much smaller thathe place we've given it. sure and there's a place for certain words for plant medicine. for all kinds of other. body working and better better that's why. and moved out he said are really powerful. shows in these days of our fears and i'm sure that you know even with your dot mind in the way you think about these things even if you if it's not for yourself or your family are figures that come with this. and through those
2:21 pm
fears and dreams. what. what kind of change a you havin. i had a dream last night of. the day friend. very very wise person. i'm having a panic attack. maybe maybe jim is telling me that that the most useful thing i can do. is to offer a counterpoint to the panic. to be peaceful to not freak out about the virus and not freak out about the freak out. you're not freaking out about the- totalitarian agenda and so forth.eah end to end because words that peacefulness come from. it comes from. the trend recognition. others who who i am and who we are. and that. the tendency of the univse's toward more life. i
